Do Hair Transplants Leave Scars?

Do Hair Transplants Leave Scars? Do hair transplants leave scars? This is a question commonly asked by most patients considering surgical hair restoration. After all, the ultimate goal of a hair transplant procedure is to recreate a natural head of hair without any sign of surgical alteration— an accomplishment that is fundamentally undermined by unsightly scars in the donor area.

However, it is important for patients to have reasonable expectations with all forms of hair transplant. Depending on the procedure, light scarring will take either linear or dot-like shape, resulting from strip donor and follicular unit extraction (FUE) procedures, respectively.

Do Hair Transplants Leave Scars?

At the Hair Transplant Institute of Miami, we are committed to advancing the practice of strip donor hair transplant to ensure each patient receives a natural result with minimal scarring that is discreet and difficult to detect.

Pictured left is a post-procedure image of a real patient after receiving a strip donor procedure. Using a unique Ledge Closure technique developed by Dr. Paul Rose, linear scars are effectively camouflaged by directing hair at the wound edge to grow through the scar line. This method, along with sound surgical technique, creates very fine scars that are difficult even for a hairstylist to find.
